that history tells us can and should attract bipartisan support. >> mitch mcconnell releasing a statement that reads in part: >> harris: of course, president obama will need support from congress. wendell goler with the news live at the white house tonight wendell, good to see you. >> harris, if they want congress to go along, the president and his aids might want to get on the same page about when these jobs would be created. he says immediately. his aids say we won't see the jobs until next year or maybe late next year. the president is still trying to generate the jobs the stimulus program has come up short on. jobs return to republican control will not create. >> that's not how america was built. it wasn't built with a bunch of folks at the top doing well and everybody else scrambling. we didn't become the most prosperous country in the world just by rewarding greed and recklessness. >> republicans call the road and rail rebuilding plan another stimulus program, suggesting stimulus has become a bad word, as even the white house admits it hasn't delivered the jobs that were promised. m
? >> yes. >> tell us about them. what are the models, now, not just california, certainly not just the bay area. >> there are gardens growing everywhere. and there were a long time ago. this isn't anything new. but the idea of connecting the garden to the kitchen to the table and back to the garden again is the whole cycle. that is really transformational and important that we do. that we just don't have one little piece. the whole thing really makes sense. you don't want to have a cafeteria that is inconsistent with the way you are growing food in the garden. >> is it your belief that every public school can and i assume should do this? >> i really believe that. when you see this and everybody can come. we have 1,000 visitors a year and over the 12 years, a lot of people have come into the garden. when you see the program and see the kids doing this, you believe every school should be like this. there are montessori schools and all schools in europe and around the world where there is the way the children are fed, food locally produced and food that is ripe and in season. >> you have a bo
is if they don't concern issfpd, they don't get the respect with a meineke client, but for us that is not a compelling reason -- or they might not get a client, but for us that is not a compelling reason. security is a growing industry. i am sure they will have a fine livelihood outside the city, but there is nothing they are offering to do or that you could offer to them other than that the services you are now in this connection with the city and the sfpd. they can still help the citizenry, the private individual and private business. they just don't need to be under you. vice president mazzucco: did you find anything about the rates that patrol specials sell to their clients? what are the rates they get? and does that compare differently from what private security businesses are getting. our patrol specials getting more because of this affiliation with the san francisco police department and the police commission? do they get an inflated rate because of that? >> the simple answer is, no, we did not get the information on exactly the rates. the patrol specials refused to giv
for depreciation for use of the medallions? i realize that it is hopefully something that will never come to pass. but if we did have to repurchase a huge lot of medallions it would be very expensive. to give somebody the original purchase price when they had the use of the medallion for a long time. rather clear obligation is the board passes this item and if we enter into the lender agreement it would be to provide the purchase price regardless of what you might call the current market value or depreciation. this would only arise if you said these once transferable medallions that you bought it but you can't sell it. a lesser step if the board were to pull back on this taxi medallion program would be to say we are not going to sell anymore. but the ones that had been sold could be sold. under those circumstances you would not incur this liability. if we went forward with medallion sales we might sell 20 or 30 medallions over the course of 30 days. they could say we are not going to sell any more medallions. so long as they maintain transferable. >> it would be up to the board. it is still withi
